In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, Managing Editor of Environment & Climate News H. Sterling Burnett talks with Diane Katz. Katz is a Research Fellow in Regulatory Policy at the Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies at The Heritage Foundation. Diane discusses a report she co-authored the Heritage Foundation’s comprehensive, “Environmental Policy Guide: 167 Recommendations for Environmental Policy Reform.”
Diane argues that the most important environmental policy action that could be taken is for Congress to reign in the regulatory state by taking its responsibility for regulatory oversight, seriously and reinserting itself into regulations at the point of implementation by exercising its constitutionally assigned responsibility for being the sole organization with legislative body. Vote up or down on regulation before they become law. She also encourages the public to apply pressure on legislators — playing their appropriate roll to see that politicians don’t go to far and the Constitution is not violated.
